The reinstatement of four State Department employees who were put on administrative leave following last year’s Benghazi attack only further has only reinforced Pat Smith’s believe that Hillary Clinton should never be president. Smith’s son, Sean, was one of four Americans who died in the 9/11 attack on the American diplomatic facility in Benghazi.
On Fox News this morning, Smith said that the former secretary of state had broken her promise to the grieving mother to hold the people accountable for the security failure. According to Smith, Clinton told her she would investigate the attack and contact her, but she never ended up hearing back from America’s top diplomat.
“Not only that, but she knew at the time that it was wrong what she was telling me,” Smith said, referring to the administration’s claim that the attacks were instigated by a YouTube video. “I want the whole world to know it: she lied to my face, and you don’t want this person to be president.”
Smith has been the most vocal family member of the Benghazi, saying that she has been stonewalled by Obama administration officials for answers to what happened to her son. She’s also primarily placed the blame on Clinton for not doing enough during and after the attack.
